porsche collection-out of control hobby

i had posted this thread over on the "early S Registry" in january of this year
and never got around to posting it here on the bird.

what started out as some early spring cleaning ,getting organized at the begining of the year -has turned into a " CATCH ALL" Ttype of blog for my ongoing PORSCHE activities.

some of you may have seen this before.......
here it goes in no particular order..

enjoy

Why not, it will most likely do better as an investment than money in the stupid stock market.

Enjoy it.

Whatever you're paying your staff to keep the shop organized is not enough! I'm loving the 911R tribute.

You are a bad-ass dude and awesome collection. We would be honor to see the rest of your collection. If and when you decide you want to clean up your garage and need help give me a call. ;-)

I honestly think that you must be a Porsche or Peich love-child.
The shell that you are selling is calling my name. The problem is that I want your red ST-R so I might as well have you build it for me. Damn!

Magnus, I would seriously like to stop by and see you're place in person.
I showed pictures to my friend Aeran, and she's been asking about it too.
We're both looking to purchase lofts in Downtown L.A. (I'm sick of Hollywood and she's sick of Sherman Oaks).
You may know our cars better than you know us..
